Can’t blame Obama for taking to trail to stir public support

Mitt Romney faults President Obama for being “out campaigning to the American people doing rallies around the country,” and John E. Sununu refers to Obama as having “a string of campaign-style rallies across the country.” I applaud the president’s choice of tactics in the face of House Speaker John Boehner’s red-faced intransigence and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s sputtering refusal to acknowledge the results of the recent elections.

If Obama can get the ill-served public to light up the phone lines in the offices of those legislators who refuse to put our country above party, there is a chance for the country to step out of election mode and address its problems.
